Island Birthday Vibes - Stampin' Up! Paradise Palms

   Now that the weather is getting warmer and we are looking towards spring and summer it was high time that the Paradise Palms bundle was used for one of my classes.  I got my color inspiration from this card by Su Mohr.  I loved the use of the purples to create the tropical scene.

  It's another poor photo from a dark and dreary day but trust me that in person this card looks better!  The clouds were all stamped in Fresh Freesia in varying degrees of stamped off ink.  The palms trees are stamped in Blackberry Bliss and the 'land' is cut from a piece of Heart & Home DSP.  The bottom edge is torn for an easy bit of texture.

  The birthday greeting is stamped in Garden Green and cut with the Tasteful Label dies and a bit of retired Blackberry Bliss ribbon (any matching current ribbon could be substituted or color your own with Stampin' Blends markers)

  A few Iridescent Rhinestones add a bit of sparkle around the palm trees for a finishing touch.

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
